All across our nation, Americans are actively engaged in efforts to save the places that make our communities special and unique. In recognition of these many and diverse activities, the National Trust for Historic Preservation has, since 2005, declared the month of May to be National Preservation Month. We invite you to join this year’s celebration here at home!
We are honoring National Preservation Month with a project designed to raise awareness about the need for adoption of an historic preservation ordinance in Alhambra. Each Monday in May, we’ll post a new installment of our Mythbusters series. Much of what passes for “information” on historic preservation is actually just rumor, speculation and myth. We’d like to set the record straight, and we encourage you to use the factual information you will discover here to educate and inform your friends, neighbors and community leaders.
Each and every individual can make a difference in changing public policy. If you care about the protection of Alhambra’s unique and irreplaceable buildings and neighborhoods, we invite you to join with us to make historic preservation a vital element of our city’s General Plan.
Check in with us again on Monday, May 7th for the first installment of May Monday Mythbusters. You’ll be glad you did!
